New chapel taking shape at Army base
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A new chapel is being built at Fort
Campbell, Ky., to accommodate congregations that have outgrown the
seven small chapels built decades ago.
There are more than 20 different religious services held at the
installation that draw between 2,000 and 2,500 people weekly.
Chaplain Col. Roger Heath says none of the existing chapels can
hold more than 300 people. The new chapel complex will hold up to
1,200 people and will include religious education and child care
facilities. It's scheduled to be completed by February.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have increased the demand for
religious services for the approximately 30,000 soldiers and their
families stationed at Fort Campbell. Chaplain Heath also notes that
more soldiers are married with children than in previous
generations, so having a chapel with space for children will
encourage more families to worship on the installation.
Fort Campbell has 81 chaplains who conduct Christian, Jewish,
Muslim and even Pagan services.
